Veterans Voices of Northeast Indiana 2020

Veterans Voices Mon. Nov 12th 7pm WANE 15

Help Us Reach Our Veterans!

It's our third year! - We were honored to be able to use the power of WANE 15 to get our message out for our veterans to sign up - and also HONOR area veterans in our community.

WHEN: Wednesday November 11th, 2020
TIME: 7pm - 8pm EST
WHERE: WANE 15 (CBS) Fort Wayne TV Market

In partnership with WANE 15, Honor Flight Northeast Indiana will part of an hour long salute and Thank you to area veterans.  Alyssa Ivanson and Pat Hoffmann  (WANE 15 Morning Anchors) will once again host the show.  They will visit with area veterans and help tell their stories, tell unique stories of veterans with are partners around the US along with 8 segments produced by your own HFNEI -  all in an effort to help show the veterans of our community - what Honor Flight is and that "It's time to sign up".  Honor Flight Northeast Indiana will host 8 segments during the show with interviews with veterans, information on the application process and a look behind the scenes at the volunteer work that it requires to make the flights possible.

This special "show" first and foremost is a call to action to our veterans of the area who have not yet signed up for an Honor Flight.  Their time is NOW!  Please don't hesitate.  There are too many veterans that think "It's not my time" or "I don't deserve to go".  Those are false assumptions.  If they served in uniform - then they are eligible to go.  They did not have to serve during battle, in theater, etc.  Even if they served stateside during their entire enlistment - they are still fully eligible for an honor flight.

This show is basically our "big voice" our chance to tell the story of why WWII and Korean veterans need to sign up now!  Believe it or not - there are still living WWII veterans in the area that have not gone!  There are Korean veterans in our area that actually have not heard of Honor Flight.  HELP US SPREAD THE WORD.

We can't say Thank you enough for your consideration.  We hope you were able to watch the show.  it aired ON VETERANS DAY, WEDNESDAY November 11th, 2020 from 7 pm -  8 pm on WANE 15 (CBS) in the Fort Wayne area.
